As I mentioned at the beginning of the month, I will be awarding one book with the Serendipity Reviews Star of Excellence at the end of every month. This will be awarded to the book that I have loved reading the most that month. It doesn't have to be a new release and it doesn't have to fit in with any specific age group. All it has to do is keep me reading. It will be a book that keeps me up way to late at night and will completely engulf me in a story.
For this first month, it really was a tough decision. I was stuck between three books which I loved equally. But there could be only one winner.
The Star of Excellence for February 2016 goes to:
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton.
This book totally captivated me and practically swept me off my feet. The last book to catch me like that was Daughter of Smoke and Bones by Laini Taylor. The world building was fantastic as it seamlessly blends Arabian myths with the Wild West. It truly was a spectacular debut and I am urging everyone to read it.
